international pilot

in honour of march being #trypod month, here’s everything you need to know about podcasts! (part two here)

what the heck even are podcasts?

podcasts are audio shows that are either in episode or radio format, which you can download and listen to whenever you like, for free!! there are both fiction and non fictional podcasts, so there is something for everyone

why should i listen to these?

podcasts are similar to audiobooks and radio shows in that you can listen to them anywhere, on your phone or computer, and are ideal for commutes and journeys (i personally listen to most of mine on the bus to and from school). most podcasts are made by people as a hobby rather than their job, so you can support them by listening as well 

where can i find podcasts?

pretty much every podcast ever is available on itunes and spotify, and many apps for non apple devices

cool, can you give me some recommendations?

fiction

welcome to night vale [weird and spooky fantasy] is about a small town in america, where a lot of weird crap goes on, but here in night vale this is generally completely normal. this is pretty much how everyone gets into podcasts, and is a really good starting point for listening to fiction podcasts

the bright sessions [sci-fi] is about some folks with superpower in therapy trying to learn about themselves, their powers and how to control them. honest to god this is my most favourite fiction podcast ever, i love it with all of my heart and cannot recommend this enough. 

the orbiting human circus of the air [fantasy?] is about an old-timey radio show that broadcasts from the top of the eiffel tower. this is honestly such a joy to listen to, and has some wonderful stories with really interesting ways of telling them

wolf 359 [sci-fi and comedy] is about a small crew in a space station, orbiting the red dwarf star, wolf 359. it starts off pretty light hearted and gets pretty wild pretty quickly, so buckle in for a bumpy ride. (they did a live show and recorded it and put it on youtube and it is honestly such a gift seeing zach jump back and forth arguing with himself.)

the penumbra podcast [noir/fantasy/western/horror] is really queer. its great. the main stories follow a non-binary pi named juno steel, but there are other stories on the feed too that are well worth a listen (and season 2 premiers really soon!)

eos 10 [sci-fi and comedy] is about some doctors in space. its hilarious (the main plot arc starts with a boner that just will not go away) and the characters are super interesting. its been on break for a really long time, but is on its way back soon, so keep your eyes peeled!

the strange case of starship iris [sci-fi adventure] is new and really cleverly done. im still blown away by how cool the end credits are, everytime i hear them. its also about gays in space which is cool also ;)

the adventure zone [comedy and adventure] is barely a fiction podcast as it is 3 brothers and their dad playing d&d. if you have never played d&d, or think its boring, then dont let that deter you, because this podcast is the funniest one i have listened to. it starts a little slowly, so be prepared for that, but it really picks up a few episodes in, and griffin’s story telling gets SO good, i really recommend this one as well

dead serious [supernatural] is about two teens who discover that the local haunted house is actually Haunted and talk to the ghosts living there about their lives and deaths (this is mine ;))

non-fiction

spirits is 2 women chatting about really cool myths and legends, both old and new, from all of the world, whilst quite tipsy. this was the first podcast i listened to and i fell in love. i personally recommend the “japanese urban legend” episode its super creepy and super cool

dead pilots society is a table reading of tv pilots that are bought by companies but never made. they so far have all been comedies and include well known writers and actors, and are great for long journeys, as well as one time listening if you don’t want to get too emotionally involved in anything

my brother my brother and me  is a really bad advice show and really good comedy podcast run by 3 brothers (the same ones in the adventure zone minus their dad) who answer questions and give terrible advice that is hilarious to listen to. they also made a tv show on seeso recently, which you can also check out the first episode on yt!

international waters is a quiz show between british and american comedians which is interesting and hilarious, with different contestants each week to keep it fresh and interesting

i have a ton more i could talk about, but these are some of my highlights. if you want any recommendations, feel free to message me or drop me an ask!

Josh decided that he loved everything about this band. Well, no, that wasn’t quite true. He loved everything about it, except that he wasn’t part of it.

In which Josh goes to see twenty one pilots for the first time, and finds that he can’t seem to tear his eyes away from the lead singer.

Hey guys, my name’s Charlotte, and I’m a 16 year old girl from Australiaaa
So a little bit about myself:
I looove music, I’ve been playing the violin since I was 5 and the piano since I was 4, so it’s a pretty big part of my life. I love listening to Twenty One Pilots, Lorde, Imagine Dragons, The 1975, Troye Sivan and Melanie Martinez. I don’t watch that many TV shows, but I absolutely love Sherlock. And I like to drink tea. Idk why i said that, just felt like popping it in there. The main reason I’m here is because I really like the idea of making friends with someone who might even be on the other side of the world. It would be awesome to have someone to talk to about random stuff in my life, and to hear random stuff from their life. So yeah, I’m generally just here to make friends :)

Preferences: Ages 15-18, no homophobics/racists/transphobics/anyone who feels unnecessary hate :)

  • Inklings: Let's make a roller that changes shape based on how it's swung so in order to have both long and short ranged attacks.
  • Octarians: Let's make a roller that can change into a motorcycle, has a respawn point built into it, and requires both a Zapfish capable of powering an entire dome and an internal pilot to function.
  • Inklings: Let's make a shotgun with an umbrella built into it to block enemy attacks.
  • Octarians: Let's make a mobile tower out of ovens that bakes our troops into giant loaves of bread.

just an hour into an international flight the pilot announces there’s a sick woman on the plane and that there will be an emergency landing at the closest airport. The plane lands and connects to the jetway, but rather than a few paramedics, an entirely different kind of squad enters the plane.

“Bessie Coleman (Jan. 26, 1892 – Apr. 30, 1926) was an American civil aviator. She was the first woman of African American descent, and the first of Native American descent, to hold a pilot license. She achieved her international pilot license in 1921. Born to a family of sharecroppers in Texas, she went into the cotton fields at a young age but also studied in a small segregated school and went on to attend one term of college at Langston University. 

She developed an early interest in flying, but because neither African Americans, nor women had flight school opportunities in the United States, she saved up money to go to France to become a licensed pilot. She soon became a successful air show pilot in the United States, and hoped to start a school for African American fliers. She died in a plane crash in 1926 while testing a new aircraft. Her pioneering role was an inspiration to early pilots and to the African American community.”

Harry, in a Sony HQ boardroom: I want a video that requires me to have to wear at least one major safety harness piloted by an intern-driven helicopter near a large body of water. Bonus points if you can get me a dramatic length trench coat or pashmina.

 ::pounds fist on the table:: I DON’T CARE WHAT IT COSTS I MUST HAVE A SAFETY HARNESS THAT IS PILOTED BY INTERNS
